“He’s got some flicks and tricks,” Cameron Carter-Vickers on his Celtic Teammates

Subscribers to Celtic TV can enjoy the latest episode in the ‘Teammates’ series where a Celtic Star answers quick-view questions about his teammates in the current Celtic squad.

This time the player answering the questions is Cameron Carter-Vickers who incidentally had no hesitation in claiming the strong-man tag for himself and air anyone wants to argue with him they’ll know where to find him. In the heart of the Celtic defence at Celtic Park this afternoon when the Scottish Champions set about looking for a couple of goals that will put the Hoops on the top of the league, looking down on theRangers

So what else did CCV get asked in this latest Celtic TV Teammates Q&A and who did he name as the teammate worthy of a mention to each question?

On the best player in training, there’s no surprises here from the American international defender who signed a permanent deal with Celtic in the summer after such a successful and impressive season long loan from Tottenham last season.

So best trainer, according to CCV is: “Callum McGregor. He’s the captain. He sets the standards for us, day in, day out.”

Asked who are the loudest and funniest members of the Celtic dressing room, CCV said: “There are a few loud players. I’d probably go Jura (Josip Juranovic) or Greg (Taylor). They both talk a lot of rubbish to be fair, so one of them.

Fastest in the squad is a race-off between two Celtic forwards Liel Abada and Daizen Maeda and there’s no debate on who is the strongest according to the USA International – it’s him! However CCV also gave a gracious shout out to Giorgos Giakoumakis.

The most skilful player, according to CCV is Jota, “you can see it in games, he likes a little trick, you see some of the stuff he does, he’s got some flicks and tricks.”

Who is the top Celtic comedian? Well according to CCV there are once again a few contenders for the funnyman award. “There are a few funny players, I find Macca (James McCarthy) hilarious. I don’t think he tries to be, but some of the stuff he comes out with is funny. Greg’s funny, Jura’s funny.”

On the manager’s favourite, it’s a case of sitting on the fence on this one. “The manager is a bit of a closed book,” CCV says, “so I don’t know who to say”…fine avoided, LOL.

Who knows the most about Celtic? “Probably go with Callum McGregor or Welshy. Welshy knows a lot them so does Callum, so one of those two.”

Best hair, no surprises again, as Ccv opts for Jota: “He does a lot, he works hard on it. Matty (O’Riley) as well, Matty’s got good hair. It’s never my style but it’s probably one of them.”

Josip Juranovic gets the Worst Dressed award from CCV: “Some of the stuff he comes in here wearing is a bit out there. Not too bad, just trackies and stuff but it’s a bit too much for me.”

Meanwhile Matt O’Riley is the Best Dressed: “I like the way Matty dresses, quite simple, but smart and O’Riley also gets the Most Intelligent title too, although CCV reveals that he did quite well at school himself.

On the nicest guy in the Celtic squad, again no surprises here: “Kyogo. He’s always smiling. His English is getting better now so he is saying a few things now. He’s always happy around the place, so him.”

Catch the video now on Celtic TV and it will probably be available via You Tube shortly.
